Missoula in Motion

Missoulians embrace green living and you’ll find sustainable transportation options readily available in the city. Missoula in Motion aims to promote the city’s popular sustainable transportation system and improve air quality through the reduction of traffic.

Founded in 1997, Missoula in Motion works closely with organizations like Free Cycles Missoula, the Mountain Line, Missoula Downtown Association, the Bike/Walk Alliance for Missoula, and the Parking Commission to help sustain the city’s quality of life through reducing harmful emissions.

Missoula in Motion helps organize a variety of events and programs to work with citizens and businesses to educate and promote alternative modes of transportation. The Sunday Streets Missoula event aims to educate the community about active transportation through recreational activities and exercise.

Through its Momentum program, Missoula in Motion works with local businesses to supply employees with options for sustainable commuting. Working with companies and businesses to provide their employees with sustainable transportation benefits is one of the primary functions of Missoula in Motion.

Program Supervisor Alexandria Stokman says the recent economic downturn, coupled with the shift in consciousness tied to the green movement of the last 3 to 5 years, has resulted in more employers and employees viewing sustainable transportation as an important employee benefit.

While Missoula in Motion largely fills an educational role with companies and businesses, the organization can also help small businesses with limited resources set up sustainable transportation benefits at no cost to the business.
